We're probably all aware of the many car break ins in the St. Louis area the past few years. It's been happening all over the place and no area is totally free of this crime. But KSDK did some research and found the areas which have the highest number of car robberies.
Lumiere Place Casino
Parking garages near Busch Stadium
And these are public places, there is no hard info on neighborhood car break ins which are numerous and continuous.
Last summer a youth group from Paris Illinois was to take a late afternoon tour of the campus after a trip to the City Museum. While in the museum, their van was broken into and just about everything was stolen. Back packs, suitcases etc. They had nothing but the shirts on their backs when they got to us.
